Is it possible to go on Pegasys Therapy with liver Cirrhosis?


Posted by dhksaife

Friends,

I was suffering HCV Genotype 3
My hepatologist started Pegasys+ribavirin therapy on july 2008 for 24 weeks.

Around 7 months of therapy he made some pathology test
followed

           HBsAg:Negative 
           Anti HCV:Reactive

           Andoscopy: Grade ii-iii Oesophaegal Varix 
           Moderate Degree of portal hypertensive gastropathy 
           Duodenal Ulcer 
           CBC & Blood Film: are normal except lower platelet count 108x10

The PCR report was shocking for me!!!!
Is it possible to relapse the viral load as mentioned above?

Any one would you please advice me something?
 
Thank you
